Nadav Soroker

Nadav is one of those food photographers who didn’t start out capturing food. He studied documentary photography and photojournalism at university level before working as a staff photographer for various newspapers.

Nadav also did his share of environmental reporting in his previous career. His food images have definitely benefited from his rich documentary experience. Nadav clearly relishes creating visual stories about the farm-to-table journey.

His work isn’t limited to plated dishes but tells distinct stories about people and places from ancient vineyards to a chef at work. Although based in Santa Fe, Nadav’s work takes him all across New Mexico and the cross country.

Herschel Mair Photography

That Herschel Mair has decades of experience (25 plus years) is clearly visible through his extensive online portfolio. He has gained valuable knowledge and expertise working with product, advertising, corporate, and food clients in and beyond Santa Fe.

What we appreciate about Herschel’s work is that it takes the form of the unmistakable artistic touch. He combines a distinct subject (food in this case) with muted and yet complementary backgrounds and food elements that enhance the framed vision.

Herschel forgoes noisy scenes for minimalistic images with the drink or food soaking up the viewer’s attention.
